My name is Toni R. and I have been a ‘bandster’ for 4 years now. Getting the Lap-Band was the best decision I have ever made. Sure, for the obvious reasons such as the weight loss (I’ve lost 4 dress sizes so far and counting!), but more importantly because of the quality of life I have gained.
I am very physically active again. I am now able to run half-marathons, do triathlons, and cross-country ski with my family. I also began ballroom dancing with my husband. These are activities that I have never had the energy to do before. My sons tell me how they love doing these activities together, instead of me sitting on the sidelines.
This has not always been an easy road. The Lap-Band is a tool, and we, the patients, need to be compliant with the program. We need to be mindful of what we eat, how we eat it and being physically active. With success comes motivation to do more, and doing these things just makes me more excited and joyful!
Quality of life is ultimately what you gain with the Lap-Band! Discovering new activities, new possibilities and being healthy.
Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!
